The NFL season just started, so of course we’ve already got everything that comes with it. Heartbreaking defeats, acrobatic plays, highlight reel touchdowns, and video of beatdowns at Levi’s Stadium.
The video after the jump, via Deadspin, shows one Vikings fan facing off with – a.k.a. getting the shit kicked out of him by – numerous 49ers fans. According to the guy who recorded the video, here’s how it went down:
“The Viking fan in the video and a 49er fan NOT in the video were talking smack to each other, getting into each others faces. A lot of fans from both sides were telling both people to stop and just walk to their cars. The 49er fan then walked away from the situation and that’s when the Viking fan may have got a little cocky. The Viking fan turned around and addressed everyone behind him (mostly 49er fans). He said “ what’s up, any of you fuckers want some?!” At that point everyone went silent for 2 seconds then as the Viking fan was turning around to walk away, the 49er fan in the black (at the beginning of the video who threw the first punch) tackled him to the ground. That’s where the video starts.
A (likely drunken) taunt and relatively safe environment turns into a tackle from behind and then what’s more of less an ambush. It’s not even that Niners fans can’t stop assaulting people, it’s that they can’t even do it to their faces. They’re assholes and cowards.
Here’s the video:
